Pelle that's the best point I think you ever have made!...It's bad for baseball to let guys like him get what they want!
Pelle I think you got away from the argument. He didn't say that the Dodgers should give Manny anything more than they already offered. What he said was MANNY should take the deal.
You are absolutely right that you can't give Manny something just cause he says so but the argument wasn't that the Dodgers should give him what he wants. The argument was Manny (MANNY) should take the deal.
no no no, I am not saying they should give him 3 years, 75 million or whatever, Im saying they should stick to the 2 years, 45 mill and the Manny SHOULD TAKE THAT DEAL!
Ok Boy's we all have valid points but the fact is Manny did what every Gm fears and What people think about when they are laying down thier money to buy tickets!! He is bad for the game!! If the Dodgers what to pay him and he feels like they didn't give him what he wanted!! GOOD LUCK I HAVE SEEN IT LIVE AND IT STINKS!! I think joe will have another fraud on his hands we can all read about!!
MANNY FRAUD!! HE SHOULD SPEND BASEBALL LIFE ( 3 YEARS) IN FREE AGENCY!!!!
BUT HE SHOULDN'T GET AWAY FROM THIS WITH A FAT CONTRACT!!! YOU MISSED THE POINT THE GUY WILL NOT PLAY UNLESS HE GETS WHAT HE WANTS!! IT IS BAD FOR THE GAME!! PERIOD!!
PS: THANKS RAIDER MIKE!!!!!
Well Pelle it's simply is the truth of what you said and you have already seen it in the NBA with the whole Kobe vs Shaq thing. Kobe got what he wanted Shaq out, it makes me sick to see it, but this is the nasty part of sports and allowing Manny to dictate things is just bad for Baseball and piles on all the other things that are wrong!.
but i wasn't saying the dodgers should give him what they want...i said he should take the 2 year deal for 45 mil...he isn't going to get a better deal so he should take the one they offered...not once did i say the dodgers should give him what he wants...
I understand that! My point is the if they don't give him what he wants he won't play and it is bad for the sport? I think you are saying the dodgers need him and if i did i would give him what he wants or he will QUIT ON YOU!!!
